ORTHODONTICS
Today, orthodontic treatment is a viable option for almost any adult. It is well recognized that when left untreated, many orthodontic problems may become worse. When you have a malocclusion ("bad bite"), your teeth may be crowded, excessively spaced or may not fit together correctly. Such conditions may lead to dental health problems. Crowded teeth are hard to clean and, given time, may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss. Bad bites can also result in abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces , difficulty chewing and damage to supporting bone and gum tissue. Poorly aligned teeth can contribute to pain in the jaw joints.

 

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment is undertaken for problems that involve alignment of the teeth, how the jaws function and how the top and bottom teeth fit together. The goal of comprehensive orthodontic treatment is to correct the identified problem and restore the occlusion (the bite) to its optimum. Treatment can begin while patients have primary teeth, when they have a mix of primary and permanent teeth, or when all permanent teeth are in. Treatment may consist of one or more phases, depending on the nature of the problem being corrected and the goals for treatment.

Orthodontic care may be coordinated with other types of dental treatment that may include oral surgery (tooth extractions or jaw surgery), periodontal (gum) care and restorative (fillings, crowns, bridges, tooth size enhancement, implants) dental care. When finished with comprehensive treatment, the patient must wear retainers to keep teeth in their new positions.

Most patients begin orthodontic treatment between ages 9 and 16, but this varies depending on each individual. Because teenagers are still growing, the teen years are often the optimal time to correct orthodontic problems and achieve excellent results.

Most orthodontic problems are inherited. Examples of these genetic problems are crowding, too much space between teeth, protruding upper teeth, extra or missing teeth and some jaw growth problems.

Treatment is important because crooked or crowded teeth are hard to clean, and that may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. A bad bite can also cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, difficulty in chewing and/or speaking, excess stress on supporting bone and gum tissue, and possible jaw joint problems. Without treatment, problems may become worse. Orthodontic treatment to correct a problem may prove less costly than the additional dental care required to treat the problems that can develop in later years.

Then there's the emotional side of an unattractive smile. When you are not confident in the way you look, your self-esteem suffers. Teen-agers whose malocclusions are left untreated may go through life feeling self-conscious, hiding their smiles with tight lips or a protective hand.

Variety of Braces :

METAL BRACES
Metal braces (stainless steel) are the most popular type and economical type of braces used. Different colours can be added for fun and excitement.


CERAMIC BRACES
Clear ceramic braces are aesthetic choices for those who don't want their braces to show as clearly. These braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do.

Self Ligating Braces

With self ligating metal and ceramic braces, the treatment time is shortened by approximately 20% compared to normal braces.

INVISALIGN
Invisalign treatment fits into your life however you want it to. Since your aligners are virtually invisible, most people won't even notice anything different. (Until your new smile is revealed, of course.)

The Invisalign system offers you convenience superior to any other option for treating orthodontic or dental issues. It's removable so you can take out your aligners whenever you feel the need-for business meetings or other occasions-which not only gives you flexibility, but can benefit your health, too.

No matter how busy you are, your schedule won't be weighed down with visits to your dentist or orthodontist. Depending on your personal case and your provider's preferences, you could have doctor visits as little as once every six weeks. These visits are fairly brief because in most cases you'll just be picking up your new sets of aligners and your doctor will be checking on your progress.

LINGUAL ORTHODONTICS

With Lingual Orthodontics you can straighten your teeth with braces that are not visible. The reason for this is because they are placed on the inner surface of your teeth, inside the mouth where they cannot be seen (unlike conventional braces that are placed on the outer surface of your teeth).

It is never too late to look and feel at your best! Problems like crooked teeth, spaces between the teeth or teeth that stick out can be corrected.

Most adults seek orthodontic treatment for cosmetic reasons; however, many may seek treatment because of jaw dysfunction, excessive wear of individual teeth or problems with dental hygiene.

Whatever your reasons, we will concentrate on straightening your teeth and achieving harmony of your teeth, jaws and face.

A beautiful smile radiates confidence and projects a positive image. It is an important part of looking and feeling great. It may even make you look younger!

Increase your self esteem with an attractive smile.
